FAQ

Why are some learners’ grades not syncing to the LMS even if their status on the monitor page is completed?

The learner’s status will be marked as completed on the monitor page when they complete all the bulbs in the playlist, but the grade will only sync to the LMS after completing all the items (bulbs and other items) in the playlist. So if a learner has completed all the bulbs but left some items incomplete in the playlist, the learner’s grade will not sync to the LMS. Please inform the learners to complete  all items in the playlist to ensure their grades will sync to the LMS.

NOTES: To mark the item as completed, learners need to meet the following requirement:
  • PDF: reach the last page of the PDF.
  • Image, text, and web embed item: stay on the item for at least one second.
  • Attachment file: download the file.

When learners meet the requirement, there will be a popup message on the top right to inform them the item is completed.

Why are there discrepancies between the grades in the LMS’s grade book and the monitor page?

PlayPosit will automatically sync learners’ grades to the LMS grade book when they complete the bulb for the first time. If the bulbs in the playlist allow learners to retake, and learners retake the bulbs, the updated grades will reflect on the monitor page but won’t be synced to the LMS automatically.

If instructors find discrepancies between the LMS grade book and the monitor page, please click on the Sync Grades button on the monitor page to send the updated grades to the LMS
